    OBU is upfront about all costs which makes it appear more expensive than other schools, but in reality it is very comparable because there are no surprise costs when you go to pay your bill.

    Definitely worth the cost! It was cheaper for me too attend Oklahoma Baptist than a private college from all the scholarships I received. OBU gives academic, music, instrumental, and sport scholarships. The campus has challenged me in my academic skills for me to become successful. Spiritual life is also another important factor and at OBU there are so many opportunities to test/act/learn more about your faith whether it may be attending Chapel, GO Mission trips, or volunteering at a local charity.

    The initial price for OBU can be daunting. I had originally thought that there was no way I could afford coming to OBU, but in the end I ended up paying less to come to OBU than my sister was paying to go to UCO (a state school in OK). This was because of the many different scholarships that are offered at OBU. I received an automatic scholarship based on my ACT and GPA that cut out a ton of my tuition. Those have different levels based upon your performance on the ACT OR SAT. I also have a church partnership scholarship and received a KIWANAS scholarship as well. You can get scholarships based on ethnicity, sports, involvement in different organizations, and department scholarships once you are a student. Don't turn away from OBU because of sticker shock. We have great financial aid counselors that are willing to work with you and can provide great options.

    The experience as well as the education gained at OBU make it well worth the price. Every student admitted is awarded an automatic academic scholarship, which really helps as well. I realize that there are many schools that cost less than OBU, but I cannot even imagining giving up the experiences I have had and the knowledge I have gained for that!
